Ellie Goulding has married Caspar Jopling at York Minster cathedral in York, England.

The British popstar got engaged to the art dealer in August 2018, around 18 months after they began dating. 

Following a year-long engagement, Ellie arrived at the church on Saturday afternoon in a blue Volkswagen camper van, where she was greeted by cheering fans. 

The 32-year-old wore a long white dress with beading detailing on the bodice by Chloe designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi, with the ensemble topped off with a matching veil and a bouquet of white roses. Caspar, 27, sported a tailored suit from Huntsman. 

Many of the couple's friends and family members watched as they exchanged vows, while celebrities at the event included Katy Perry and her fiance Orlando Bloom, actress Sienna Miller, singer James Blunt, and comedian Jimmy Carr, as well as Sarah, Duchess of York and her daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. 

Princess Eugenie's husband, Jack Brooksbank, was one of Caspar's groomsmen. 

Following the ceremony, Ellie and Caspar exchanged a kiss in front of the building, before hopping into a vintage car and heading to Castle Howard for the reception.

For the first time since its 1990 release, the 25th album from avant-gardist saxophonist Pharoah Sanders reissued on limited vinyl by Tidal Waves Music.

The 6 tracks LP may have originally disappointed some of Sanders’ fans, but with time he has gained in notoriety with his reinvented style as a more traditional improviser capable of thoughtful and pensive deliberations. Recorded in France in 1989, Sanders plays here with an all-star line-up consisting of Stafford James on bass, William Henderson on piano and Eddie Moore on drums.

On this album, the legendary saxophonist clearly reinvented himself as a more traditional improviser, capable of thoughtful and pensive deliberations. Catchy mystical New Age vocals, astrological references… Pharoah may remain an acquired taste, but few jazzmen can equal his unique formula of mastering the ‘groove’.

This edition comes packaged as a deluxe 180 gram LP and is limited to 500 copies worldwide (with obi strip). Moon Child follows Tidal Wave’s reissue of Pharoah Sanders’ Africa LP earlier this year.

Moon Child, September 27  via Tidal Waves Music. You can pre-order it here now.
